GEORGETOWN, Ky. — Aaron Stover’s netted a golden goal in the 98th minute for Georgetown College, as the Tigers handed Cumberland its sixth extra time loss of the season in a 2-1 victory Friday in men’s soccer action at iHigh Field..

The Bulldogs (4-10-1, 3-4-0 Mid-South) dropped to 1-6-1 this season in extra time, including 0-3-0 in conference action. Freshman Josh Armstrong drew a red card in the 76th minute for CU, giving the club just 10 players for the final 14-plus minutes of regulation and almost eight full minutes of overtime. Cumberland also played without senior Mark Harrison, who missed his second match this season because of an accumulation of yellow cards.

Harry Mason put the Bulldogs ahead in the 12th minute on an assist from Elliot Goodwin, the 14th goal of the year for Mason. CU outshot Georgetown, 27-14, in the match, including 14-5 in the second half, but the squad was unable to find the back of the net for the go-ahead score.

The Tigers (5-8-1, 3-3-1) squared the match in the final minute of the first half, with Matt Huff feeding Aldo Torres just 42 seconds before the break.

In the extra time Stover scored unassisted for Georgetown, his fourth goal of the year. Matthew Oster made 11 saves in net for the Tigers, while Ian Hamilton was credited with six saves for the Bulldogs.

Cumberland will continue its current road swing with Sunday’s match at No. 3-ranked University of Rio Grande at 2 p.m. CDT.
